Gibson Les Paul Reissues – True Historic vs. Standard Historic
From 2015 on the 1958, 1959 and 1960 Les Paul guitar reissues split into 2 different product lines:
– The Standard Historic which arguably keeps the same standard as the last years' reissues.
– And the True Historic series where Gibson got very meticulous about the plastics position and composition and some other details where many purists swear they make a ton of difference for the sound.
Though some are more players than collectors and vice-versa, specs may or may not justify the price difference
So I decided to:
List all their features of the into a very organized spreadsheet. Download this full list at http://bit.ly/2ywTW80
Highlight these two series's differences (image attached)
PS: mind that I used the 1959 Reissue as reference for the comparisons, and the R8 and R0 have pretty similar specs
I hope you find these files helpful and informative!
Have a great weekend!
